‘The Blacklist’ season 1, episode 3 preview: Megan Boone’s next challenge

The Blacklist logo any season“The Blacklist” started out strong, and tonight it held itself together pretty well for another episode that served to answer the questions of many, but just where does the story go from here? It looks to continue the procedural format in some ways, but at the same time, the goal is also to establish an even more serialized show and to give us a deeper look into Elizabeth Keen’s life, and whether or not some of the people in it (especially a certain man in her life in Tom) are to be trusted.

Next week’s episode, entitled “No. 84 – Wujing” (a habit for this show when it comes to titles) is going to give Megan Boone quite a bit to do as she starts to peel back the layers; the action will stay high-octane in the process, and that is largely due to a hunt for a man that Reddington claims to have a little bit of history with. Take a look at the full synopsis below:

“The FBI searches for a high-ranking Chinese spy named Wujing — whom Red claims hired him to help decode a classified CIA transmission; Liz investigates Tom.”

Is it possible that “The Blacklist” could enter next week actually feeling as though it has a full 22-episode season ahead for it? If the ratings tonight stay at a similar level to what happened with the premiere, it would not be a shock for NBC to bestow upon it the honor of being the first fall season to earn a full pickup. The battle for this seems to be between this show or maybe “Agents of SHIELD” on ABC, which had a monster premiere last week.
